Good Morning,

We would like to use Multicasting on our K2000 and became aware that this uses PGM only and does not use IGMP.  Is this still the case?  What do you use for large deployments if PGM is not supported or is not able to be implemented?

Thank You,

  • PGM is still the only supported one. It looks like they are working on a different protocol for the future though. You may want to vote on this in the link below.

This might not be an "answer" but we have found that using WIM imaging works just fine even for large deployments.  There doesn't seem to be much of a time savings at all with multicasting anymore, and I have seen many comments here that reflect that.  Large deployments for us would be typically 30-40 computers at a time, but some have said they can do 100+ at a time without issue.

  • I use multiple unicasts of wim files and I can cast faster then multicasting does. I am one of those that can do 3 or 4 classrooms at a time. I store my wims on a windows share which is faster deploying vs a samba share. Windows to windows connections negotiates a faster transfer speed. see http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/wim-storage-k2000-version-3-7-freeing-up-space-on-your-k2000-if-you-are-using-wims-and-speed-up-deployment-using-network-windows-shares
